Summary of Complaint

AS I WAS DRIVING THROUGH I-95, I NOTICED THAT THE INTERIOR ROOF LINING MOSTLY ON THE REAR AREA STARTED FLAPPING AND SAGGING. IT WAS BLOCKING MY REAR VIEW VISION, WHICH WAS VERY DANGEROUS WHEN DRIVING AT HIGH SPEEDS. I WAS FORCED TO SHOULDER AT I95 BECAUSE OF THIS AND CLOSED MY WINDOWS JUST TO AVOID THE DISTRACTION. IT WAS STILL SAGGING YET NO FLAPPING OCCURRED, I EXITED PREMATURELY AT I95 TO DRIVE TO THE SIDE STREETS TO BE SAFE. NOW THE REASON WHY IT WAS FLAPPING IN THE WIND IS BECAUSE I WAS FORCED TO OPEN MY WINDOWS BECAUSE OF ANOTHER HONDA CIVIC PROBLEM, AN A/C PROBLEM THAT WAS UNRESOLVED FOR ALMOST TWO MONTHS. I KEPT GOING BACK AND FORTH TO SERVICE CENTERS TO HAVE IT FIXED BUT NO LEAKAGE WAS FOUND. MY A/C WAS NOT WORKING AND WAS LATER FOUND OUT THAT THE COMPRESSOR MALFUNCTIONED. IT WAS A SERIES OF UNPLEASANT EVENTS THEN THAT INVOLVED MY HONDA CIVIC ASIDE FROM THE TIRES THAT I NEED TO REPLACE 3 TIMES IN A SPAN OF THREE YEARS..

Summary of Complaint

I HAD PULLED OFF THE FREEWAY EXIT AND PROCEEDED TO FOLLOW THE CARS AHEAD OF ME AS THE TRAFFIC SIGNAL LIGHT HAD TURNED GREEN AND DID NOT NECESSITATE ME STOPPING, ONLY SLOWING DOWN TO CONTINUE MY LEFT HAND TURN ONTO THE SURFACE STREET. SUDDENLY WITHOUT WARNING THE SUN VISOR FLIPPED DOWN WITHOUT BEING TOUCHED AND HIT ME IN THE FOREHEAD. THE HARD PLASTIC EDGE HIT ME RELATIVELY QUICKLY AND KNOCKED MY PRESCRIPTION GLASSES OFF. THERE WAS A MOMENT WHEN I HAD MY VISION OBSCURED AND DID NOT SEE THE VEHICLE IN FRONT OF ME COME TO A RATHER SUDDEN STOP. I NARROWLY ESCAPED HITTING THE BACK BUMPER OF THE VEHICLE AHEAD OF ME. FORTUNATELY I WAS TRAVELING AT A RELATIVELY LOW RATE OF SPEED, MAYBE 20 MPH WHICH PROBABLY WOULD HAVE CAUSED MINOR DAMAGE, IF ANY. HOWEVER, PEOPLE CAN BE INJURED BY WHIPLASH EVEN IN LOW SPEED REAR-END COLLISIONS. I HAVE SECURED THE VISOR WITH A BUNGEE CORD FOR THE MOMENT BECAUSE THE DEALERSHIP WANTS TO CHARGE CUSTOMERS FOR THIS DEFECTIVE PART PLUS LABOR AND IT IS NOT CHEAP. I AM AFRAID THAT THE BUNGEE CORD MIGHT SNAP AND CAUSE A DIFFERENT SORT OF INJURY; HOWEVER, THERE REALLY IS NO WAY IT WILL STAY UP AGAINST THE INTERIOR CABIN ROOF WITHOUT IT. I WOULD LIKE TO ADD THAT I RECALL MY 2002 HONDA CIVIC HAD THE EXACT SAME PROBLEM WHICH OCCURRED ON BOTH THE DRIVER'S SIDE AND PASSENGER'S SIDE AT DIFFERENT TIMES. ALSO, AT CERTAIN TIMES OF THE DAY THE SUN IS SO BLINDING IN CALIFORNIA WHERE I LIVE THAT IT IS EXTREMELY HAZARDOUS TO NOT BE ABLE TO SEE THE ROAD AND HIGHWAY SIGNS AND LIGHTS WITHOUT THE ASSISTANCE OF A VISOR TO BLOCK THE GLARING, BRIGHT LIGHT OF THE SUN. IN MY ESTIMATION IT IS ONLY A MATTER OF TIME BEFORE THIS OBVIOUS DEFECT CAUSES A MAJOR FATALITY ACCIDENT. *TR

Summary of Complaint

I HAD TO HAVE ALL FOUR TIRES REPLACED ON MY 2008 HONDA CIVIC LX AT 34,658 MI. JULY 2010. WHEN I BROUGHT MY CIVIC IN FOR ITS ROUTINE CHECK UP, WHICH I DO WHENEVER I'M AT 15% OIL LIFE, I COMPLAINED OF A ROARING NOISE FROM MY TIRES. THE HONDA TECH GUY SAID MY TIRES WERE BADLY WORN AND SUGGESTED I BUY NEW TIRES IMMEDIATELY. KUHMO TIRES, THE BRAND I BOUGHT FROM HONDA, HAVE A 60000 MI. WARRANTY. THAT SAME ROARING NOISE IS BACK AND I WENT IN FOR MY ROUTINE CHECK UP AND WAS TOLD THAT MY TIRES NEED TO BE REPLACED AT 61285 MI. DECEMBER 31, 2011. ONE TECH GUY HINTED THAT THERE HAVE BEEN PROBLEMS WITH THE REAR-UPPER CONTROL ARM CAUSING POSSIBLE PROBLEMS WITH CERTAIN CIVICS. IF THIS IS THE CASE, I WANT IT CORRECTED, AND I WANT MY TIRES REPLACED AT NO COST TO ME. HONDA TELLS ME THEY DON'T KNOW WHAT THE PROBLEM IS AND WILL ALLOW ME TO PAY FULL PRICE FOR NEW TIRES WHILE THEY TRY TO GET ME A 50% PRORATED REIMBURSEMENT FROM KUHMO. I AM NOT SATISFIED WITH THIS AT ALL. THIS IS A COSTLY SAFETY ISSUE. THERE HAS BEEN HEAVY RAINFALL IN MY AREA AND MY CAR HYDROPLANES. I TOLD THE HONDA SERVICE DEPARTMENT THIS, AND THEY SAID THAT IT IS BECAUSE OF MY WORN TIRES. I GET MY TIRES ALIGNED AND ROTATED ON THEIR RECOMMENDED SCHEDULE. IF THERE IS A DEFECTIVE PART THAT IS CAUSING THE PREMATURE WEAR OF MY TIRES AND IS PUTTING MY LIFE AND THE LIVES OF MY FAMILY AS WELL AS OTHERS ON THE ROAD AT RISK, HONDA MUST TAKE RESPONSIBILITY FOR THIS PROBLEM AND CORRECT IT. *TR

Summary of Complaint

I JUST BOUGHT THIS CAR 7 MONTH AGO AND REPLACED BRAKES, ROTORS, A TIRE, REPAIRED A BROKEN LUGNUT, AND NOW THE ENGINE HAS OVERHEATED AND BLOWN AND IS EVIDENTLY NOT COVERED UNDER THE PREVIOUS WARRANTY BECAUSE IT IS PAST EXPIRATION (YEAR AND MILEAGE). PUTTING A USED ENGINE INTO THE VEHICLE IS NOT GOING TO SOLVE THE PROBLEM, AND MY DEALERSHIP IS NOT WILLING TO PUT A NEW ONE IN. WHEN IT BEGAN OVERHEATING, I HAD JUST PULLED ONTO THE HIGHWAY (AVERAGE SPEED OF ABOUT 50) AND NOTICED THAT MY HEAT WASN'T WORKING (WHICH WAS WEIRD SINCE I HAD REPLACED THE THERMOSTAT ALREADY A FEW WEEKS PRIOR) AND THEN THE CAR READ AS HOT AS POSSIBLE. WHEN I SAFELY PULLED OVER, THERE WAS SMOKE COMING FROM UNDER THE HOOD AND IT WAS TOWED TO A RELIABLE MECHANIC WHO SAID IT WAS THE COOLANT LEAKING FROM THE ENGINE BLOCK, BUT WAS NOT PART OF THE WARRANTY ANYMORE.

HONDA EXTENDED A WARRANTY FOR 2006-2008 CIVICS TO REPLACE DEFECTIVE ENGINE BLOCKS. I HAVE A 2008 CIVIC THAT HAS VERY LOW MILEAGE SO I WAS UNAWARE OF THIS ISSUE UNTIL NOW. THEY WILL NOT HONOR THEIR REPLACEMENT WARRANTY, NOR DID THE DEALERSHIP SAY ANYTHING TO ME WHEN I HAD MY CAR SERVICED THERE SEVERAL TIMES A YEAR SINCE 2015. WHY WOULD THEY NOT SAY SOMETHING? NOW I'M LEFT WITH A CAR THAT IS USELESS AND I BET THE DEALERSHIP I HAVE PURCHASED MORE THAN 5 CARS FROM WILL TAKE IT AS A TRADE IN. IT WAS IN MOTION PARKED TO GO IN THE STORE AND CAME OUT TO ALL OF MY ANTIFREEZE ON THE PAVEMENT. HAD TO LIMP IT SOME SO IT WOULDN'T CAUSE MORE DAMAGE.

Summary of Complaint

GOOD AFTERNOON, MY 2008 CIVIC (137,500 MILES) OVERHEATED WHILE ON HIGHWAY & AFTER PULLING OVER & CHECKING COOLANT SPILL TANK SAW IT WAS EMPTY. NEXT DAY REFILLED RADIATOR WITH COOLANT & AFTER STARTING CAR NOTICED COOLANT LEAKING ON GROUND AT FRONT RIGHT SIDE OF ENGINE. I COULD NOT LOCATE LEAK. DROVE TO NEAREST HONDA SERVICE DEPARTMENT & AT SERVICE (VIA PRESSURE TEST OF ENGINE COOLING SYSTEM) A CRACK IN ENGINE BLOCK BETWEEN CYL. 1 & 2 WAS LOCATED. I WAS TOLD BY SERVICE TECH THAT HONDA IS AWARE OF ENGINE BLOCK CRACK/ DEFECT & INSTEAD OF ISSUING A SERVICE RECALL WHAT THEY DID WAS A WARRANTY EXTENSION OF 10 YEARS. HOWEVER, THAT WARRANTY EXPIRED 2 YEARS AGO. SERVICE MANAGER CALLED AMERICAN HONDA CORP. FOR GOODWILL ASSISTANCE TO TRY & HELP WITH REPAIRS BUT AMERICAN HONDA REJECTED/ DECLINED THE REQUEST & HAS LEFT ME WITHOUT A VEHICLE. I AM NOT ABLE TO PAY FOR A NEW ENGINE. I HAVE NO CAR FOR WORK, FOR MY MOM/ DAD DOCTOR VISITS/ FOR SUPERMARKET/ FOR LIFE. COSTS OF REPAIR ARE ARE ABOVE $5,000. I WAS THE 2ND OWNER OF MY 2008 CIVIC & WAS NOT NOTIFIED BY HONDA OF THE WARRANTY EXTENSION OR OF A POSSIBLE RECALL NOTIFICATION OF THIS SAFETY ISSUE. I RECEIVED RECALL FOR THE AIR BAG (TEKATA), BUT DID NOT RECEIVE ANYTHING FOR A CRACKED ENGINE BLOCK. WHY IS THAT? HOW IS AMERICAN HONDA CORP. ALLOWED TO DO A "WARRANTY EXTENSION" TO RESOLVE A MAJOR SAFETY PROBLEM ONLY WHEN THE ENGINE CRACKS & ONLY WHEN YOU NOTICE YOU HAVE A PROBLEM. WITHOUT ANY PRIOR WARNING, THESE VEHICLES CAN HAVE AN ENGINE FAILURE/ STALL WHILE DRIVING AT HIGHER SPEEDS, INCREASING THE RISK OF CRASH. AS A LIFELONG HONDA OWNER (20 YEARS '97 ACCORD AND '08 CIVIC) I AM BEYOND DISAPPOINTED. DISAPPOINTED NOT BECAUSE OF WHAT HONDA LEGAL DEPARTMENT DID VIA "LEGAL LOOP HOLES," NO. I'M DISAPPOINTED I WILL NEVER OWN OR DRIVE A HONDA AGAIN. GOOD DAY.

VEHICLE DIAGNOSED BY HONDA DEALERSHIP SERVICE DEPT WITH A CRACKED ENGINE BLOCK. DEALERSHIP REFERRED ME TO HONDA CORPORATION REGARDING WARRANTY EXTENSION FOR MANUFACTURING DEFECT ON ENGINE BLOCK. HONDA CORP DENIED ME ASSISTANCE BECAUSE VEHICLE AGE IS PAST THEIR 10 YEAR EXTENSION PERIOD. I'M SECOND OWNER ON THIS VEHICLE AND DIDN'T REALIZE THERE WAS A POTENTIAL ENGINE MANUFACTURING DEFECT WHEN I BOUGHT THE CAR (FIRST OWNER DID NOT DISCLOSE THIS). ESTIMATED KBB VALUE WAS $4500-5000 WHICH NOW IS A NEAR TOTAL LOSS AND SALVAGE VALUE. COST FOR REPAIR IS EQUAL OR HIGHER THAN RETAIL VALUE. VEHICLE HAS WELL DOCUMENTED SERVICE AND MAINTENANCE RECORD. SEEMS UNFAIR FOR THIS MANUFACTURING DEFECT TO PLACE ALL THE COST ON THE OWNER WHEN THERE IS NO OWNER CAUSE FOR THIS PROBLEM.

CAN TO FIND OUT THAT THE ENGINE BLOCK CRACKED FROM RADIATOR LEAK THAT HONDA KNEW ABOUT AND DID NOT INFORM ME OF. MAINTENANCE DONE AT DEALERSHIP REGULARLY AND WAS THE ONLY OWNER OF CAR. BECAUSE I DRIVE SO LITTLE MILES PER YEAR, PROBLEM HAPPENED JUST AFTER THE EXTENDED WARRANTY THEY HAD TO 'RESOLVE' THIS PROBLEM FOR OWNERS. WHY WOULDN'T THEY TELL ME ABOUT THIS PROBLEM BEFORE THEY KNEW ABOUT IT. HAD TO MAKE TOO MANY PHONE CALLS TO FINALLY HAVE THEM REPLACE THE ENGINE FOR $3500. IT'S UNSCRUPULOUS FOR A CORPORATION TO KNOW THERE'S A PROBLEM BUT JUST EXTEND THE WARRANTY AND NOT RECALL IT AND THEN NOT HONOR THE EXTENDED WARRANTY EVEN THOUGH IT WAS JUST OUTSIDE THE TIME WINDOW.

THERE NEEDS TO BE A RECALL ON THIS AND NOT AN EXTENDED WARRANTY. BEING THAT A CRACKED ENGINE BLOCK IS A SAFETY ISSUE AND THIS ALMOST CAUSED AN ACCIDENT AS THERE WAS SO MUCH SMOKE POURING OUT I COULD NOT SEE IN FRONT OF ME THERE NEEDS TO BE AN INVESTIGATION ON THESE ENGINES.

THE ARM REPLACEMENT WAS INTENDED TO RETURN THE TIRE CAMBER ANGLE TO ZERO (SEE ALIGNMENT CRITERIA IN LAST PAGE OF TSB) SO THE THE WHEEL WOULD BE PERPENDICULAR TO THE ROAD, AND NO LONGER CAUSE WEAR AT THE INSIDE EDGES. AT A RECENT INSPECTION, THE TIRES WERE AGAIN FOUND TO BE WORN AT THE INSIDE EDGES: THERE WAS ABOUT 1/4 INCH OF TREAD ON THE OUTSIDE EDGE, BUT THE CORDS WERE SHOWING ON THE INSIDE EDGES. I VALIDATED THAT THE DEALER HAD ACTUALLY INSTALLED NEW CONTROL ARMS (THEY ARE MARKED WITH A "C" AS DESCRIBED IN THE BULLETIN). USING A LEVEL, I DETERMINED THAT THE TOP EDGE OF THE WHEEL WAS LEANING INWARD ABOUT 9/16" INCH, SO IT IS APPARENT THAT THE REPLACEMENT ARMS DO NOT CORRECT THE CAMBER ANGLE PROBLEM. IT IS TRUE THAT THE TIRE WEAR RATE HAS BEEN REDUCED BY THE REPLACEMENT ARMS. HOWEVER, SINCE THE INSIDE EDGE WEAR IS NOT OBVIOUS WITHOUT CRAWLING UNDER THE CAR, THIS CONDITION COULD LEAD TO TIRE FAILURE. I CORRECTED THE PROBLEM BY INSTALLING AFTERMARKET CONTROL ARMS THAT HAVE A LENGTH ADJUSTMENT, WHICH ALLOWS THE CORRECT CAMBER TO BE ACHIEVED DURING ALIGNMENT. AS SHOWN ON PAGE 1 OF THE SB, THE HONDA ARM HAS NO LENGTH ADJUSTMENT.
